Slavia Active, Ambition & Style Trims
The image above shows two trims of the Skoda Slavia parked side by side at a dealership. On the left in white colour, we have the base Active trim and on the right in silver, we have the mid Ambition trim. However, there aren’t too many elements that give away the variant information at a first glance. Ignoring the missing fog lamps, the base trim looks almost identical to the Ambition trim. This is helped by the chrome grille which is similar to the Ambition and Style trims. The alloy wheels could be the only prominent distinguishing factor among the various trims of the Slavia. The other feature that is most likely to be exclusive to the top Style trim will be the electric sunroof. This is a great way to ensure a relatively constant exterior appearance for a vehicle irrespective of the trim.
The Skoda Slavia comes with a 1.0-litre TSI and a 1.5-litre TSI EVO engine. The smaller engine outputs a maximum power of 115PS and a peak torque of 175Nm, while the larger unit offers a maximum power of 150PS and a peak torque of 250Nm. The transmission options for the former include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic, while the latter comes with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG. The expected prices will be around Rs 10 lakh to Rs 16 lakh, ex-showroom range.
